Creativity & Mayhem: Anonymous Communities at Work Discussion
Limited Capacity seats available

The presenters of Creativity & Mayhem: Anonymous Communities at Work join us to #ideadrop the SX session.

Communities like Anonymous and 4chan's /b/ create Internet culture, change politics and make news. But how do they build trust, share work and intervene in the world? How can new groups and movements use anonymity and pseudonymity? While Facebook and Google push for an Internet of real names and persistent identities, we will present an alternate universe of thriving, chaotic, bizarre and effective cultures created by nobody in particular - and their implications for activism, politics and creativity online.

Libraries: The Ultimate Playground Redux
Limited Capacity seats available

Carson and Andrea just presented... Let's break it down on the stream.

Libraries have grown far beyond the nostalgic scent of books on shelves (though we still have that too). There is an explosive realm of content-wrangling that occurs on the library frontier making life-changing impacts in literacy, health, and education. There is also exists a quagmire of metadata messes, licensing loops, and lack-luster technology that is overdue for an innovative shakeup.

This is a unique setting to bring to the table the wide cast of SXSW tech & entrepreneurial attendees with some of the most grassroots, forward-thinking librarians & information professionals thinking outside-the-box today. Together we can build castles in the sandbox to connect new ideas with immediate impacts. Let's get this collaborative conversation started!
